Download e-book for kindle: Hexerei und Magie im Strafrecht: Historische und dogmatische by Verena J. Dorn-Haag

By Verena J. Dorn-Haag

Noch im 21. Jahrhundert ist der Glaube an Hexerei und Magie verbreitet. In jüngerer Zeit ergangene Judikate belegen, dass es sich hierbei um ein ernstes gesellschaftliches challenge handelt, dem sich die Strafrechtswissenschaft bislang weitgehend entzogen hat. Im Kern geht es um die Strafbarkeit magischer Praktiken wegen Betrugs, abergläubischen Versuchs, Nötigung und Bedrohung, Körperverletzung sowie Verstößen gegen das Heilpraktikergesetz. Verena Dorn-Haag hinterfragt kritisch, ob es dem dogmatisch ausdifferenzierten, geltenden Strafrecht gelingt, Irrationales systematisch konsequent zu beurteilen. Zugleich ordnet sie die aktuellen Fragen in einen dogmenhistorischen Kontext ein: Seit Abschaffung des Hexereidelikts im Zeitalter der Aufklärung stellten Sachverhalte mit Bezug zum Übersinnlichen eine Herausforderung für das Strafrecht dar. Die Autorin zeigt auf, dass bei der Beurteilung von Hexerei und Magie Kontinuitäten bestehen, die bis heute die dogmatische Diskussion prägen.

Download PDF by Carolin Gütschow: Die einstweilige Unterbringung im Strafprozess (§ 126a StPO)

By Carolin Gütschow

Die Sicherungsfunktion des Strafverfahrens hat in den letzten Jahren zunehmend öffentliche und kriminalpolitische Aufmerksamkeit erfahren. Besonders die Sicherungsverwahrung wird intensiv diskutiert. Hier ergeben sich auffällige Parallelen zur vorläufigen Unterbringung. So müssen etwa beide Maßnahmen grundsätzlich nicht zeitlich befristet werden. Dadurch wird jedoch stark in das Grundrecht des Straftäters und auch desjenigen eingegriffen, der noch nicht verurteilt wurde. Dies wirft existenzielle Fragen auf: Ist eine solche Freiheitsentziehung dadurch zu rechtfertigen, dass sie gleichzeitig dem Schutz der Gesellschaft dient? Dürfen psychisch Kranke nach dem gleichen Maßstab behandelt werden wie psychisch Gesunde? Um eine Antwort auf diese Fragen zu geben, untersucht Carolin Gütschow die Grundlagen der Menschenrechte, der Gleichbehandlung und der Unschuldsvermutung. Zugleich verdeutlicht sie, wie stark der Wunsch nach umfassender Sicherheit die Grundlagen des Strafprozesses beeinflussen kann.
